Pi Day 2019 - Five New Releases

It’s Pi Day, so what better way to celebrate than to launch five new Big Muff Pi-based circuits and have a sale on top of that?

From today (3/14, 1:59 AM GMT) through Sunday at midnight, take 20% off all PCBs and the Halo kit, and 10% off all other kits.


Cygnus Distortion/Sustainer - Cornish G-2Cygnus / Cornish G-2

An extremely expensive Big Muff clone with a meticulously-tuned buffered bypass along with an additional transistor-based buffer stage on the effect input.

Polaris Distortion/Sustainer - Human Gear Animato PCBPolaris – Human Gear Animato

Another pricey Big Muff clone, this pedal adds a Rangemaster-based treble booster to the frontend as well as some other tweaks. Most famously used by Chris Wolstenholme of Muse.

Zelus Distortion/Sustainer - Musket FuzzZelus – Blackout Musket Fuzz

This hot-rodded Big Muff adds a boost to drive the input, a bass blend capacitor, and a midrange control inside the tone stack.

Osiris Distortion/Sustainer - Pharaoh FuzzOsiris – Black Arts Pharaoh Fuzz

Another hot-rodded Big Muff, this time with a high/low impedance switch, a diode selector switch to go between silicon and germanium, and a high-frequency control inside the tone stack.

Nexus Distortion/Sustainer - Manx Loaghtan Fuzz PCBNexus – Catalinbread Manx Loaghtan

Based on the Ram’s Head, this pedal swaps out the original tone control with a 2-band Baxandall EQ, allowing control of both bass and treble frequencies independently instead of just one or the other.

Luna Optical Tremolo PCB - Tremulus LuneLuna – 4ms Tremulus Lune

This isn’t a Big Muff, but it didn’t make the last batch of releases due to a layout error. Updated for the new 125B format, this all-analog tremolo features six knobs for fine control over every aspect of the waveform.
